Pumpkin carving

We invited Brena, Jered and Camden over the Friday night before Halloween to carve pumpkins with us, and have some chili and watch a movie. We had a lot of fun. Neither Owen or Camden would touch the pumpkin guts, and thought they were so gross. Owen finally got into it and started flinging the guts all over the place with a few of the carving tools. We decided to make his pumpkin simple, and carved a funny face into in. I tried a skeleton with a bat, and Chase did the Grim Reaper. We put our pumpkins outside after we carved them, only to find on that by Halloween they were all pretty rotten and didn't look like what was carved into them. Oh well, you live and learn.

Gut flinging fun

Finished products. (left to right, front to back) Camdens cat, Jereds funny face, Owens baby face. 2nd row; Brenas funky guy, Kims skeleton. 3rd row; Chases Grim Reaper, Jereds Colosseum (which ended up the colosseum of crush by Halloween).

Side note: I later cleaned all the seeds, soaked them over night in salt water, then roasted them because Chase said he would eat them. Guess who wouldn't touch them....
